just watched Faster...the movie.. (thanks to all who made it possible to for us to download!!) I had no idea that they were still using 2-strokes for racing...

I mean my 04 r6 is a 4-stroke....and I can't even imagine having an equilivant 2-stroke bike THE FUCKING TORK!!!...how the hell do they keep the fucking front tire on the ground...not to mention....not sliding the rear tire out from uner them...

simply amazing....

yeah, they say the 500cc two stroke was one of the hardest bikes to ride. very vicious and high-sided a lot of people.

You should check out Faster and Faster 03'-04' They go into the 2003 season and just a bit of the 04...

after the end of 2003 all Motogp bikes were changed to 4 stroke, the reason that honda do so well is they were the first to develope a 4 stroke in 2002, and raced it in 2003 the rest were having to play catch-up. suzuki were the only factory team to use a 2 stroke in 2003, thats why there team was so weak in 2004

I think the 4 stroke sounds tons better then the 2 strokes did... You can really hear the difference when they show the one corner in the movie and have a 2 then a 4 stroke go through it.
